Introducing my newest main character: Kritinia!
Kritinia was born to the Queen of Light, in secret, at the lord of Light's monastery.
Bearing the sigil of a sun as a birthmark assured her lineage as the lord of Light's heir, but an additional sigil--the lord of Dark's star--meant something much more powerful was at work. Labeled the 'Ultimate Treachery', she was left behind at the monastery to be raised as a boy in the lord of Light's service.
As she grew up, Kritinia dreamed of becoming a Holy Knight--a warrior monk in the Order of Light. She excelled at weapons training, but struggled with science and math. Beyond her studies, though, a single overwhelming choice always weighed on her: Should she continue her deception and take the vows of the Order upon her twentieth spring? Or should she leave the Order to try to find a semblance of a normal life?
Next week, Kritinia is bringing the second volume of The Lords' Gambit Series to life. One of the most exciting parts of writing this series has been bringing a new character's story to each tale. Kritinia, especially, is dear to my heart (I loved her character so much that I chose to use her name as my Fiverr username).
She is witty, generous, and thoughtful.
Quick on her feet, her primary strength in a fight is her nimble unpredictability. Kritinia is not a damsel; she is a life-long trained warrior.
When all she values is lost, and all her convictions come into question, Kritinia's strength may yet have the power to save her kingdom, and the lords themselves.
